Former general manager of the National Transport Commission Paul Salter has joined the Melbourne-based transport consulting group, Meyrick.

Salter’s appointment follows a ten-year career in state and national government transport positions.

Meyrick CEO Steve Meyrick says Salter’s track record of successfully leading national transport reform, particularly in the area of rail safety, shows that he has a lot to offer.
"He can apply a comprehensive range of skills to transport issues for our clients," Meyrick says.

Salter, a transport economist, policy analyst and strategist, says he sees his new consulting role as one of providing opportunities to assist the process of transport reform.

"The past ten years have seen significant law reforms and regulatory initiatives such as the Intelligent Access Program, Chain of Responsibility, Performance Based Standards and a range of pricing reforms. I have had the benefit of being part of their development," he says.

"I see significant opportunities to integrate the use of these reforms and coordinate their application across modes, combined with targeted investment in infrastructure."

"I believe that as consultants, we can play an important role in assisting industry players and government agencies to take advantage of the new possibilities, and in doing so, we will help make these reforms a success."

Meyrick and Associates employs 20 transport and infrastructure consultants in offices in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra and Wollongong.
